Driving 

This car will certainly turn heads, and it’s really cool.

Just like the standard 2020 Toyota 86 TRD, the Toyota 86 Hakone Edition uses the same 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine and six-speed manual transmission, or you can go for the optional automatic that is found throughout the entire 86 range. 


The Toyota dealer in Orange County says that the car produces 205 horsepower and 156 pound-feet of torque with the manual transmission, and 200 horsepower and 151 pound-feet of torque with the automatic. The power only travels to the vehicle’s rear wheels.

We have to be honest, if you buy a 2020 Toyota 86 Hakone Edition Coupe, you have to go with the manual transmission. Not that we are saying that we are going to judge you if you stand by an automatic. However, a manual lets you have that direct driver feel. The car’s suspension does a good job of absorbing any bumps and potholes you come across, and there is much or any body roll to complain about. 


Other mechanical and performance aspects to bring up are the car’s front and rear Brembo ventilated disc brakes, McPherson strut front suspension, Sachs Dampers, Torsen limited-slip differential.

If that isn’t enough, Toyota continues to spoil 2020 Toyota 86 Hakone Edition owners with LED projector-beam headlamps, color-keyed power mirrors, and chrome-tipped dual exhaust are kept, as are the LED fog lamps and aerodynamic floor undercover.


Also, all models of Toyota’s 86 receive an updated 7-inch infotainment system. Finally,  the 86 has technology that supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Toyota has even fitted Clari-Fi technology into the stereo system to make digital music sound more open and natural.  


Comfort

When you visit Toyota dealers in Orange County, you will notice that the inside of the car is super nice too with upgrades such as black and tan Alcantara seats that have flawless contrast stitching. Also, the contrast stitching is used on other features inside the car’s cabin, for example, the steering wheel, dash, and emergency brake lever. 


There is also a black sliding armrest that gets tan trim and black stitching. A very nice feature to look at as you give your arm some rest and relaxation time! If you are a sucker for details, you will be glad to know that the Toyota 86 logo is stitched in tan on the passenger side of the dashboard.

The car is easy to get into with a good roof height, which comes in handy for taller drivers and passengers.

There is a fair amount of interior space, and the car’s cabin is built using a mix of good quality materials with excellent stitching as well as microsuede leather accents throughout the interior and the use of plastics. 


There is leather along the steering wheel with a few controls on them for ease of access while driving. The car does come with rear seats that fold down for extra cargo space. You can open the 2020 Toyota 86 Hakone’s rear with a button located on the trunk, or just use the key fob.

Overall


Besides the fact that the Toyota 86 Hakone Edition has Hakone green exterior paint, 17-inch bronze, an interior with a two-tone mix of black and tan Alcantara with contrast stitching; there aren’t any mechanical differences and tweaks to the standard 2020 Toyota 86.

Just a heads up, only a few of these emerald beauties will be up for grabs.
